pokemon master ex tier list

Since the release of the Pokémon franchise in 1996 in Japan, Pokémons have widely become popular with people of all ages.

Furthermore, the series and games of this franchise have been improving since their release, and now, in the 21st century, it has become one of the most loved games and series to be watched by kids and adults. 

Pokémon Master is a popular game that contains dozens of Pokémon that you can collect, upgrade and play with. The game contains a Pokémon Masters Tier List, which is super useful when you decide to play the game.

The list will help you learn more about the Pokemon that interest you. You can learn about their strengths, weaknesses, resistances, and upgrades. 

The qualities of the Pokémon are otherwise difficult to find and remember if you don’t have the Pokémon master ex-tier list. So, our guide is dedicated to giving you the tier list knowledge. 

Pokémon Masters Tier List: Everything You Need To Know!

The one thing about the Pokémon tier list you should know is that it can always change. The game is always upgrading, and hence the list is also always changing.

This is why my suggestion to you is that you use our guideline for your guidance so that it always keeps you up to date about the tier list. 

The Pokémon Master game will divide your synced pairs into different roles, including support, physical, tech, and special. Each of these roles will operate your avatar differently. So let’s get started on our list. 

S-Tier

The S-tier list is the list that can help you turn your lost battles into won battles. If you are competitive, I strongly suggest that you try to get your hands on S-tier as soon as possible because it contains some amazing sync pairs. 

Let’s take a look at some of those pairs.

Cynthia & Mega Garchomp

Using this dynamic sync with the Acerola and Palosand tech sync will become practically undefeated. Palosand can create one of the strongest storms and boost your party’s attack to an incredible rate. Mega Garchomp will also insinuate shattering damage to the opponent.

Cynthia and Mega Garchomp

If you want to unleash hell on your opponent, you must pair your Cynthia and Mega Garchomp with the Acerola and Palosand team.

Apart from this, the ideal situation to use this sync duo is in sandy terrain. With this team, you will realize that you have an AoE killing machine that can take on many enemies.

Lycanroc comes from the original series of Pokémon Moon/Sun. It is a very well-made Pokémon by the original developers. But he is also one of the Pokémon, which are easily abused because of their strong attacks.

Olivia and Lycanroc

However, the issue arrives when we see the accuracy level of Lycanroc. The only trainer that can solve this issue is Olivia at the wheel.
